Daniel's Vision (ca. 1650)

Daniel's Vision (ca. 1650)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on canvas (98 × 119 cm) — ca. 1650
Daniel 6:17 - In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

Daniel has just had a horrifying vision of a ram fighting a goat. In this painting Rembrandt shows how an angel comforts the young prophet by explaining the vision.
